Which Classes Should I Attend?
The majority of new students enroll in our Beginner Friendly Fundamentals Program for the martial arts. A staff member should have helped you pick the classes that best fit your schedule.
If you are not used to physical exercise, the Fundamentals Program will be challenging at first but in time your body will become used to the training.
Before you know it, you will be ready for some of our higher-level advanced classes in our Combat Athlete Program. To ensure that you make consistent progress we ask that you attend your chosen classes on a regular basis. Please let us know should you ever need to change your section of classes and a staff member will be happy to assist you.
If you are enrolled into the WarriorFit program ONLY, Please come to the classes that you are originally assigned to. Please let your coaches know which classes you will be attending as it helps us to determine the type of workout and availability of slots for future students to attend. I am happy to say that we are rapidly increasing in numbers and unfortunately we will have to limit the amount of students that come to certain classes due to their popularity.
What Should I Expect From The Program?
Over the next few months you will be exposed to time tested techniques and training methods unique to Mata-Leao Combat Sports.
It is important to train as consistently as possible in order to effectively learn our proven effective striking/grappling system to progress through the different levels. Above all, it is important to have fun while training so we ask all of our students to check their egos at the door. Our learning environment is meant to be cooperative but at the same time competitive.
Every single student is treated like family both in and outside the school.
